Pioneer Trail Group Campground is a true wonderland: amazing wildlife viewing opportunities, views of snow-capped mountain peaks, and a gorgeous lake filled with rainbow trout. Pinecrest Lake is perfect for fishing, boating, hiking, and swimming. The Pinecrest Lake National Recreation Trail is a leisurely 4 mile stroll around the lake. 

The campsite provides campfire rings and potable water. Winter camping is available here on a first come first serve basis. Reservations are needed from May - October, weather depending. You can reserve a group site here. The fee is $90 for a 50 person capacity site or $130 for a 100 person capacity site.
